What Eqw means is that the queue is in error state, thats the E, and is in
queue wait, thats the qw. The jobs will retry them selfs after a certain
amount of time if you have them configured to. What most likely is happening
is that you have one system that you are having a problem with so when a job
attempts to run on that system and errors out into the Eqw state another job
is dispatched to run on the system. So when you rerun these jobs they end up
running on another host that is not having a problem and going into r state.

So what I would recommend doing to finding the system/systems that are
having the problem and disable that node and then run all the jobs and see
what happens. If no jobs go into Eqw state then you found the problem and
you just need to find out why the jobs are not running on that node
